Learn the process of pressing botanicals to reserve color and texture. Then, two weeks later, use this natural medium to create a beautiful “painting” – from representational to abstract. Bring your own fresh-picked botanicals (we will give you guidance): Autumn blooms, stems, leaves, grasses. Learn how to prepare, press, and design a botanical piece of art. The optional third class meeting will entail the proper framing for a completed work that you will be able to enjoy for years to come.
